06:18 EDTMCDMcDonald's customization kiosks fail to reach drive-thru customers, QSR reports
McDonald's' new "Create Your Taste" kiosks in all its franchises, allowing for customers to customize their orders, may present a problem since they can only be accessed from inside the restaurants, and McDonald's allegedly receives as much as 70% of its sales from the drive-thru, QSR Magazine reports. The expensive new kiosks are expected to cost franchises between $100,000-$150,000 to install, the report says. "At a cost of $100,000-$150,000 per restaurant to implement, it has a limited upside," Richard Adams, a former McDonald's franchisee, told QSR. "I think this is more a stunt to appeal to Wall Street investors instead of being practical for the restaurant operator." Reference Link

06:12 EDTDNKN, MCDStarbucks K-cup momentum is accelerating, says UBS
UBS analyst Keith Siegner says Starbucks (SBUX) is seeing accelerating momentum in the single-serve cup category. The company's K-cup sales increased 36% year-over-year for the four-week period ended August 8, according to Nielsen (NLSN), Siegner tells investors in a research note. Starbucks' K-cup promotion levels ticked up sequentially, but remain well below levels from earlier in the year, the analyst points out. The company's K-Cup portfolio continues to gain share despite increasing price pressure and new market entrants like Dunkin' Brands (DNKN) and McDonald's (MCD), Siegner writes. He keeps a Buy rating on Starbucks with a $63 price target. The stock closed yesterday up 9c to $57.83. Shares of Keurig Green Mountain (GMCR) are down 62% year-to-date in part due to the company's slowing sales in the single-serve cup category.
